« A New Year's Eve Heartfelt Creation! | Main | A CHA Sneak Peek from Ken Oliver Crafts! »

December 31, 2014



I just finished watching your video! I love the finished product! Sending New Year's wishes to you and yours!

Betty Siu

I have been making cards for a few years now. Your cardmaking has been very inspirable to me.
I have had lots of fun helping others to make cards. It just builds a friendship. I also make cards for a Christian Bible study for all the children.
I don't think I would be very good without all the designers (including you) with ideas to make cards. Absolutely wonderful!
Thank you for all your posting. Enjoy it!

Karrah Stark

I do a bit of everything: jewelry making, papercrafting, resin art, yarn art, mixed media, you name it! I love all of the crafty bits from all over! :) I live in Arlington, TX, USA. Thanks for the gigantic giveaway you have here and have a wonderful and happy new year!

Donna Sherman

I really enjoy your blog and all it's inspiration, Debbie!!! I have been trying to learn card making for about a year now, playing with it, to send to friends and family only!!! I don't have a blog myself, or anything like that! And I am finding that I need a lot of help in the creative ideas department!!! That's where your blog and beautiful card ideas comes in!!! :) I live in a very small town in Ohio, and have no crafters around me to join in, so I am on my own as far as trying and learning, so I depend a lot on your blog and some others also!!!! Have a beautiful new year!!!!

Regina M. Hamilton

Thanks for the video. Your card is stunning. I live in Fayetteville GA. I'm a card maker, scrapbooker, and paper crafter.

Jeanne Kupsh

I am an Army wife, living in Germany at the moment. I love all things stamping, and while I mostly make cards, I also do some 3D projects. Stamping keeps me (somewhat) sane! :D I hope you have a happy and blessed new year! :D

Dina K

Ok, what rock have I been under? Those dies are gorgeous! You know me - I do a little bit of everything, but I have never learned to knit or crochet. Please do not teach me! Happy new year to you, friend!

Asia King

As a fellow cardmaker, I absolutely love your card and how much work and thought went into it! Love it! Thank you for the chance to win this wonderful prize! :-) Happy New Year and hugs from Oxfordshire, UK! x

Wow Debbie, such a beautiful card, thanks for the video how-to, I have now subscribed to your Youtube channel. Can't wait to sit down and view a few videos when this enormous blog hop is over : )
I am now following you via email and on Pinterest as well.
Thank you for the chance to win this very generous bundle of goodies.
I am a card maker, also jewellery and a bit of sewing, but cards are my passion at the moment, living in Glen Forrest in the lovely hills of Perth, Western Australia.


Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! I have crocheted off and on since I was 10 years old. For the past 6 years, I have been crocheting prayer shawls, and about 2 years ago I started making cards to go along with them. I still consider myself a novice cardmaker, so I really enjoy technique videos. I live in Baltimore MD.

Brenda Lee

Gorgeous project...fantastic elements! I'm mostly a cardmaker. Being single with 2 cats, there's only so many scrap pages you can make. My cats seem to give the same, after a while all the pictures look the same. LOL!! I would love to give jewelry making a try...I've been inspired. I live in Washington State. Being an army brat growing up, I've been to lots of places. Washington is the best place to live. I love all that it has to offer from the lakes to the mountains to seeing the leaves change during the fall....such a beautiful place....and the people around here are great. Hope you enjoyed reading this. I think it's great that you want to get to know some of your followers. Thank you!! Many blessings in the New Year.


I'm a scrapbooker from New Zealand who also makes cards. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

What a lovely card. I live in the midwest and love creating. I do more cards than anything and love clean lines and lots of bling! I am on The Cutting Cafe Design Team and really enjoy it. Thanks for an awesome giveaway!


I like to do layouts, mini albums, altered items, card making and colouring images using Copic and watercolour pencils. I spend a whole lot of time on crafting related activities such as browsing internet/pinterest/facebook. My greatest weakness is hoarding patterned papers. I am a flower addict too, mostly addicted to bloggers who post beautiful handcrafted flowers. I am from Malaysia, a tropical land where it rains and has sunshine throughout the years. Drooling of your prize pack, how I wish I can be that lucky. Thanks for the chance to own them.

Heidi M

Love the card! I make cards and scrapbook, but I love mixed media crafting, too. Happy New Year!

Iris Soscia

I love making cards and have done some scrapbook pages. I plan to make a lot more scrapbook pages in the near future as I am becoming a first time grandmother next Spring - two baby boys due 9 days apart. Also, I enjoy making plastic canvas Christmas ornaments. I live in Missouri.


Happy New Year, Debbie! Thanks so much for this incredible giveaway! This is my very first attempt at participating in this annual blog hop by Spellbinders. And what a hop it is! Fortunately, here in Guam, (a U.S. Territory in the Pacific Ocean) where I am, we are blessed with getting an extra "day" to participate because of the time zone! LOL! We are a day ahead of the U.S. Your mixed media card here is beautiful. I've not attempted that at all. Seems too hard for my simple mind. With that, my craft right now, is card-making. Maybe one day I'll try mixed media. Just need the supplies. LOL! I dabbled in cross-stitch, needlepoint, quilting, and scrapbooking, but have had to lay those down because of working outside the home. Blessings on your crafting this upcoming year!

Cathy Galloway

Wow! Great prizes! I live in Michigan (freezing right now). I am a teacher so I love to spend my summers crafting. This last summer I started an art journal and am really getting into learning new techniques with mixed media art.

Michele H.

What an awesome prize package! Thanks for giving 2015 a great jump start! Great ideas and inspiration too!

Pamela Burke

I am a cardmaker who loves glitter and bling. I am not crafty or artistic, so I am a harden CASE stamper. Only wish I had more time to craft.

Claudia La Barre

Hello Debbie,

After being a decorative painter for over 20 years, I now am loving my first two years as a card maker and just taking my first steps at scrapbooking. What a challenge, thankfully there are lot of wonderful people willing to share their knowledge! I have found that I really like flower stamps and lots of layers, and the colors, there isn't a bad color.

I live in a rural area of S. W. Washington and traveling 25 miles to town is just a quiet time to reflect of what different paths I have traveled and a planning time for the future. I am married to a very supportive man and we are fast approaching our 53rd year of marriage....what a trip! He is so helpful, such as making storage for my paper, now I need at least 2 more, and making shelves for other "stuff" I need close at hand and cooking dinner when I am deep in my cards.

Thank You for sharing you beautiful cards and techniques and for the chance to win all those "AWESOME" goodies.


Rose Santuci-Sofranko

I am a photographer and digital artist, but I also love papercrafts (origami, quilling, etc...) and some jewelry making. Thank you! Such "lovelies" on this Blog Hop! God bless you and yours in 2015 and always! {{HUGS}} ILuvTheEucharist @

Dana Joy

WOW Debbie what an amazing giveaway. I'm a cardmaking at heart. I will try other things but card making brings me so much joy. I just started a YouTube channel this year so making videos is what I will try to do more of this year.

Thanks for a chance to win this giveaway. I'm following you on bloglovin' hope you'll follow me as well.


Kelly Flaherty

Happy New Year Debbie! First let me thank you for the fantastic prize package you've put together, it's so very generous! I am from Charleston SC, one of the most beautiful and historic cities in America, but boy oh boy does it get hot!!! As for what types of crafting I enjoy - card making, mostly clean and simple, scrapbooking, cross stitch, building legos for/with my grandsons (I have 4), and knitting. Actually, I rarely have time for much lately, but I have a resolution to set aside 3-4 hours per day (or maybe every other day) to do stuff just for me. Like crafting. I hope your new year is exciting, prosperous and blessed!
